About Anna 

I am born and raise in Northeast Ohio and have been creating art ever since I could hold a crayon.  After attending Kent State University, where I studied graphic design and art history, I decided to pursue my passion for art working as a freelance artist painting murals for homes and businesses as well as commissioned artwork.  I specialize in acrylic paintings both abstract and detailed.  I love creating art that will out live me, inspire people and make others feel good. 

I have had the opportunity to combine work and travel which has allowed me to be a part of many different events along the west coast and in the islands of Hawaii.  I feel it is important to support others artists and give back to the community in any way that I can.  Some of the most satisfying times in my life as an artist have been when I was involved with fundraisers and art auctions that helped to better others lives who needed the help the most.  

I am most inspired by other artists who are also following their passion for the arts.  Music, yoga, travel and people watching are some my favorite things to do when I am not painting.  

Last year I decided to put some of my artwork designs on kids t-shirts and it has really taken off.  Green Grom Clothing & Design is now available online and at local farmers markets on Oahu.  You can check it out at www.greengrom.com
